Abstract

This paper aims targets to make understand the bedrocks and recent advances in Multi-core Fiber Technology using Space Division Multiplexing. Few mode multi-core fiber (FM-MCF) that enable space division multiplexing (SDM) have greater capacity to enhance the transmission capacity compared to (SSMF) Single spatial mode fiber. The concept of Heterogeneous Few Mode Multi-core Fibers has paved it’s a way in optical communication system replacing Homogeneous Few Mode Multi-core Fibers which were previously opted. In this paper, we have modeled MCF of different geometries. The uncoupled multi-core fibers (MCFs) which can utilize multiple cores are arranged in a fiber as spatial transmission channels and then is used for the SDM transmission. Design of different structures with different number of cores are also shown. Here, in this paper, the authors use COMSOL Multiphysics (5.2) for carrying out required simulations.
